Dear Glen Mar,
It’s Labor Day weekend! It has me thinking about “God at work.”: “God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.” (Gen. 1:31). I like picturing God in a yellow hardhat, construction plans in hand, with a ruler, a “plumb line” (see the Book of Amos), a pencil behind the Divine Ear. I see a twinkle in God’s eye, and a concentrated look, that feeling of flow, where time stops. I hear God whistling softly, sanding sharp corners and making angles true.
